In 1966 the University’s Board of Trustees integrated all of Emory’s health components into the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center. The Woodruff Health Sciences Center joins those components of Emory University concerned with patient care, education of health professionals, research affecting health and illness, and policies for prevention and treatment of disease. Its components include schools of medicine, nursing, and public health; Yerkes National Primate Research Center; Winship Cancer Institute; Emory Global Health Institute, and Emory Healthcare, the most comprehensive health system in Georgia.  https://boilerplate.emory.edu/pages/the-robert-w-woodruff-health-sciences-center
